computers listed twice (connected to OMS via SCOM)
The following query is in My Dashboard. ObjectName!="Advisor Metrics" ObjectName!=ManagedSpace | measure max(TimeGenerated) by Computer | Sort Computer
Upon closer inspection the total number of servers listed does not equal the server count in the Malware IP and System Update IP. From what I can see most servers are listed by FQDN with the name in ALL CAPS. The duplicate servers are listed in lower case.
For my workspace I added 117 via SCOM but for the query above as well as the 'servers utilized' field under usage the value is 190.
Curious if this is a bug and more importantly...is data streaming from servers counted twice in upload metrics?
Currently the values of the Computer field are case sensitive and a distinction isn’t made between host names and FQDN. These factors can result in the same computer being reported as different computers.
Data isn’t being counted multiple times for the servers – typically the difference in name results from how the data was collected (different data sources can report different names).

Added my vote as we're seeing the same thing after connecting SCOM and OMS this week. Not sure if this will cause any per node billing issues.
